There was a fine race at the Phoenix Park on Saturday when over 300 runners partook in the second ever Donor Harrers 5k race.  The race also had a unique twist to it as well in so far as there was a bonus prize for the leader of the mens and ladies race at 3K as well as at the finish. As it turned out the same people won both races – which was good news for Sportsworld’s own Catriona Jennings who had a great race to win the ladies title in a time of 17:06.

The course was very fast for the first 3k but then we hit the hills and to make it worse a very strong wind against us
which knocked back any hopes for most of us of getting a quick time.

Still there was some fine performances and as well as Catriona there was a masters victory for Lucy Darcy.
Also Aoife Brady finished a very creditable 5th in the ladies and with Jean Wilson 10th, the ladies team finished 2nd.

The best finisher of the men was Kevin Curran in an impressive 17:48.

All in all a very enjoyable race with exceptional goodie bags and great range of refreshments at the end.
